Brilliant service at a great price

Claire provided us with website ts and cs, a privacy policy and subscription ts and cs based on a fairly loose brief (from me). Her first drafts were almost exactly what we wanted and after one teleconference she nailed it. Not only that, but she provided the documents in our website fonts and style so all we had to do was a simple cut and paste. She also gave us loads of free advice about other things we might need in future. We will definitely be engaging her again. Highly recommended.

Turned my planned set of seven documents required for the business into a coherent and sell structured three document package. Some complex and unusual requirements were extremely well executed, along with a fast turnaround and great communication. Thanks!
